By | Published Sun 29 Oct 2023 at 2:06am

The Formula 1 Mexican Grand Prix is just around the corner, and excitement is building for what promises to be a thrilling race. With Max Verstappen on the verge of breaking a new record, and fierce competition from the likes of Mercedes, McLaren, and Ferrari, fans can expect nothing short of high-octane action on the track. In this detailed guide, we will delve into all the important information you need to know about the Mexican Grand Prix.

Where and when is the race, how can I watch in Australia?

The Mexican Grand Prix takes place in the vibrant capital city of Mexico, Mexico City. The only place to catch all the live action from this thrilling event is through the Fox Sports broadcasting channels, available on both Foxtel and Kayo Sports. The race is scheduled to start at 7am AEDT, so make sure to set your alarms and clear your schedule to witness this adrenaline-filled race.

What do I need to know about the track?

The Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, where the Mexican Grand Prix is held, presents a unique challenge for the drivers. Situated at a high altitude of over 2,000m above sea level, the thin air poses additional difficulties for the teams to tackle. The track offers a thrilling mix of long straights and challenging corners, providing ample opportunities for overtaking and high-speed action.

The start-finish straight is particularly exciting, with trailing cars benefiting from a long DRS section into the first turn. The winding section from turns seven to 11 tests the stability of each car and the skills of the drivers. Additionally, turns 13 and 14 take the drivers through a massive grandstand section, offering fans one of the most unique viewing sights in Formula 1.

What happened last year?

Last year’s Mexican Grand Prix saw Max Verstappen break the record for the most wins in a season, setting the stage for another potential record-breaking performance this year. Starting on pole position, Verstappen drove a brilliant race in hot conditions, securing his 14th victory of the season. A win in Abu Dhabi later sealed his record at 15 wins.

Meanwhile, Daniel Ricciardo showcased his exceptional skills by driving his McLaren to a respectable seventh place, despite receiving a 10-second penalty for colliding with his now-teammate Yuki Tsunoda. Last year’s race was a testament to both Verstappen’s dominance and the fierce competition throughout the field.
